Tracking COVID cases on campus

The Citadel remains vigilant in tracking and reporting new cases of COVID on campus. As of March 8, the COVID tracker above will no longer be updated daily — rather, the tracker will be updated only if new cases are reported.

Employee protocol for confirmed, suspected and close contact COVID-19 cases

The following guidance outlines the actions that employees and supervisors must take if they are diagnosed with COVID-19, suspect they might have COVID-19 or are deemed a close contact of a COVID-19 positive individual. These actions, based on current CDC guidance, are intended to protect the health and safety of campus occupants; they are not medical guidance.

If you test positive:

  • Regardless of vaccination status, stay home and contact your supervisor and HR at hr@citadel.edu. Supervisors must maintain the confidentiality of the impacted employee and should communicate with HR as appropriate.
  • Stay in contact with your primary care physician or go through MUSC or Roper’s virtual care systems for continued care. 
  • A member of The Citadel’s HR team will contact you and advise you on the appropriate timeframe for returning to work. 
  • In most cases, you are required to remain out of work and isolate for five days after onset of symptom or positive test result. You will be allowed to return to work after five days of isolation, and you will be asked to wear a mask around others at work for an additional five days.

If you are experiencing symptoms:

  • Stay home and contact your supervisor and HR at hr@citadel.edu
  • Contact your primary care physician or go through MUSC or Roper’s virtual care systems to schedule a test. We also ask that you remain out of work until you receive a negative COVID-19 test or your symptoms subside. 
  • A member of The Citadel’s HR team will contact you and advise you on the appropriate timeframe for returning to work. 

If you are deemed a close contact or someone in your household tests positive: 

  • If you are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or have not tested positive for COVID-19 in the last three months: stay home and contact your supervisor and HR at hr@citadel.edu
    • Contact your primary care physician or go through MUSC or Roper’s virtual care systems to determine when or if you should schedule a test. We also ask that you remain out of work until you receive notification from The Citadel HR to return.
  • If you are fully vaccinated and are not experiencing symptoms, you do not necessarily need to quarantine. You should contact your supervisor and HR at hr@citadel.edu to discuss options.  Unless otherwise informed by your physician, in most cases, you may return to work, wear a mask indoors, social distance as appropriate and continue to monitor symptoms for 14 days. 

If you are in proximity of a positive case in your work area or are a secondary contact:

  • Based on CDC and DHEC guidance, you may continue to work, but you are encouraged to wear a mask and monitor symptoms daily regardless of vaccination status. 
  • Unless advised by a medical professional to do so, you may not need to quarantine or be tested unless symptoms develop.

Contact tracing:

  • According to DHEC, state agencies and institutions are no longer required to conduct contact tracing with each positive case. Therefore, we also encourage you to review the CDC calculator tool for isolation and quarantine guidance (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/quarantine-isolation.html).
  • If you were in close contact (within 6 feet for more than 15 minutes) with anyone 48 hours prior to your positive test result, you should contact them and they should follow the CDC guidance for quarantine using the tool above.

If you have any questions or concerns, or are in need of a free at-home COVID test, please contact hr@citadel.edu
